Lil Durk comes through with official visuals for his remix of Logic's hit.
A couple of weeks ago Chicago mainstay Lil Durk found himself in a bit of hot water after remixing Logic's "1-800-273-8255" single. Critics took issue with Durkio hopping on the backdrop of a suicide prevention anthem and laying down lyrics like, "It's gon' be a homicide It's gon' be a homicide / Fuck with Durk and they dyin' today /They told me they sick and tired/They don't want to die today."
Durk would later come out and explain that he meant no harm or disrespect and simply used the track to tell his own story. Generally, the track was well-received and in that same spirit, Lil Durk has decided to drop off a clip to accompany the remix.
Directed by Jerry Production, the video opens up with a brief tribute to rapper Fredo Santana, who passed away recently after suffering a fatal seizure, and adds onto the story Durk says he was trying to craft as he faces the realities of the trenches.
